We experimented with stuff like that here in the Netherlands (well not exactly the self-floating barriers you are proposing)

We have inflatable flood barriers (google "balgstuw Ramspol" if you want to get the idea)

The military also had floating barriers in the fifties/sixties, but these were to flood the land and delay the Russians. Just block your major river of choice and don't tell the civilians that live there until running is the only option left.

Of course, here, they won't help, because the government are just going to sell it to them. smiley - run
